Feedback sought on Kilbarchan housing proposal
Cala Homes (West) is inviting residents of Kilbarchan to a community consultation event on 14 June to learn more about initial plans to develop land off Barrhill Crescent.
The event will take place at Kilbarchan Parish Church between 3.30pm and 8pm, and the community are encouraged to attend and leave feedback on proposals that will help deliver much-needed homes in the region.
Cala Homes (West) submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) to Renfrewshire Council in May 2023 and is seeking to develop the currently unused plot of land that sits adjacent to Barrhill Crescent in the south east of the village. The land has been allocated for housing by Renfrewshire Council as part of the Local Development Plan, approved in 2021.
The proposed housing development will include a mix of private and affordable homes, with ample greenspace woven into the masterplan. Current proposals include approximately 70 three, four and five bedroom homes, and affordable units.
Graham McNeil, land director at Cala Homes (West), said: “We are in the very early stages of developing concepts and designs for the site in Kilbarchan and look forward to sharing initial proposals with the local community at the upcoming event.
“We plan to work closely with the local community, neighbours and stakeholders, including Kilbarchan Community Council, as we progress and refine initial designs. Feedback from the event will help shape this.”
A second stage consultation is planned for August 2023 and more information about this will be available closer to the date.
